Vintage Fashion Outfits

Sunday, 21 July 2013

If you have read my previous post, you will know that today I attended the Ripley Vintage Fair. Being a fashion student I love clothes, outfits and vintage. So put them together and I am in heaven. Here are a few of my favourite outfits and some of the fantastic people I met today.

These three looked amazing! They even brought their own vintage style picnic. I thought this man got his outfit so spot on and would have been perfect for my last design project as he looked like a real 1930's Gangster or as if he had just jumped out from Public Enemies.

These two were just adorable. They were also the well deserving winners of the best dressed competition run at the fair. And rightly so. They were head to toe in genuine vintage from the 1940s and how sweet do they look in it?

I saw this girls shoes when I first arrived and fell in love. But it wasn't just the shoes that I really liked, it was the pairing of the socks with them. She told me the shoes were just from Topshop and by the looks of it so are the socks. But it just shows that putting some pretty little frilly socks with a pair of peep toes or any similar style shoe for that matter, can really change the look of an outfit and make it a little different.

It was the colour and the coordination of this ladies outfit that really drew me to her. Matching gloves, shoes, and bag - this is how its really done!

This girl here is called Paige and is wearing one of my favourite outfits of the day. Having spoken to her I found out that she was also a fashion student as well as a blogger too. Not only did she look fabulous, she also made the dress herself!

I really love the straps on this ladies shoes and the colour of this mans jacket is fantastic!

This couple were so lovely to chat to. We spoke for quite a while and they were so nice they even asked if they could have a picture of me and my outfit.

You may have seen these two couples on my previous post. They played some fantastic music and entertained us all with some dancing. The pleating in these dresses meant that when the ladies danced the dresses moved and flowed perfectly.

How amazing are these colours together. And that fur!

You cant see too well on this photo but the detailing on the shoulders and neckline of the dress was stunning.

These ladies were so fun. They also entered the Best Dressed competition and made their dresses themselves.

This is Beverly, she is  a vintage specialist and I think you can tell from how well put together her outfit is.

Another of my favourites. I thought her outfit was impeccable; from the bag, to the dress, to the fur. These cat eye sunglasses are most definitely on my wishlist along with eyebrows as perfect as these. I thought she looked so glamorous. 

While I took time out just to outfit watch and draw, I found that the people who put in that little bit extra looked the best. Those that added a pair of lace gloves, some sunglasses, or a small bag; men that added braces to their shirt or wore a hat looked brilliant. 

I am sure you can see from these photos why I enjoyed the day so much. Everyone put in so much effort and it really was worth it.  I had so much fun, met some fantastic people and came away very inspired.

A post on my outfit choice for the day will be up shortly.
